Doug Aitken is a renowned artist who’s been featured everywhere from MoMA to the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris for his genre-bending work. For his latest masterpiece, Doug Aitken built a mirror-clad mirage in Coachella Valley. Mirage, as he calls it, is a ranch-style suburban American house composed of reflective mirrored surfaces that “distills the recognizable and repetitious suburban home into the essence of its lines, reflecting and disappearing into the vast western landscape.” Removed of all the stories, people, possessions, doors, windows and openings that make a home what it is, Mirage is a statement piece with a fluid relationship with the surrounding environment. Situated at the edge of the Coachella Valley and the San Jacinto mountain range, the sculpture isn’t so much a respite from the gorgeous natural landmarks that surround it as it is a lens into their beauty. The exhibit will remain on view until late October of this year.
